Genuine Italian Food

We were looking for a good Italian Restaurant in the Abergavenny area and decided to try the Pizzorante. It was full, noisy and I didn't expect such excellent Italian cuisine. I thought it might be just another Pizza restaurant. It wasn't. For my first course I asked for a Spaghetti Aglio, Olio e... read more

Definitely one to book for, Pizzorante is popular with work groups and family groups. Food is prepared with care and plenty of individualistic touches. Restaurant can be a little noisy s probably not suitable for an intimate dinner but otherwise would suit all most any other grouping.

Came here as a last minute decision on a Friday night. First visit and I would definitely visit again. There was 3 of us and when we got there the small restaurant was fairly busy, the guy said it would be a half hour wait for a table but as we had a 5 year old with us we were... More

Small, intimate and great fun. Often busy so it's always best to book a table ahead of a visit. Plenty of parking in the council car park across the street - free after 6.00 p.m.

It's how I imagine proper Italian food to be. My grandchildren thought the pizzas were spot on as good as anything near their home in London

Ate here on a Friday night with my wife and daughter. The service was spot on and the food was great. The olives are some of the best we have ever had and thats saying something coming from a greek who loves his olives! We shared a vegetable pizza and a pasta main (with prawns) and both mains were delicious.... More

Four of us had a variety of dishes: fish stew, lasagne, penne with a tomato and sausage sauce and my vegan pasta with tomatoes, mushrooms and aubergines. Everything was very tasty, and the waiter was friendly and keen to please, without being overbearing. The chef came to our table to discuss my vegan option and more or less made the... More

Visited Pizzorante on a Tuesday night towards the end of food service. Received a great welcome, fantastic service and wonderful food. The garlic bread is a "must try", we will certainly return soon. Thanks for such a great meal.

Haven't visited for a while but was as excellent as ever. Very warm welcome (they remembered me from a previous visit of 6 months earlier. The food was great, authentic Italian cooking and dishes, Can highly recommend the Courgette Fritte for a side to share. Great atmosphere and busy too, make sure you phone ahead and book a table.

What an excellent surprise to be tipped off about Pizzorante, get a short notice booking because of a cancellation and then have a wonderful meal. Just off the main street, it looks tiny from the outside but goes back a long way. The atmosphere was buzzing as it was full of customers of all ages and a good number of... More
